Spicy Avocado Hummus with Cheesy Quesadillas

This past weekend was bittersweet for our family, as Abby graduated and we attended a whole lot of graduation parties. I devoted the weekend to party-hopping, trying to get to as many as we could. It was exhausting (with 100+ degree days), but fun. I thought back to a couple weeks ago when Abby had her friends over after school … and they were hungry.

What do you make a bunch of starving teens … in very little time? We’ve always been a quesadilla-loving-family, so this was easy for me to whip up.

The secret to good quesadillas is to use good tortillas, and butter both sides (I know, lots of calories, but so good!), and get that “crunch,” so they are not soggy.

I used a Mexican mixed cheese. And served them with black olives!

Mashed the avocados and added simple ingredients, to make this Spicy Avocado Hummus.

Great snack, if you’re ever looking for something quick and easy!

Abby had a great idea, the day of graduation, to invite all the senior girls in her class to the park for “girlfriend” photos. Not all of them showed up, but she got several series of group shots. I loved how the pictures showed them so bright and cheery, such beautiful girls.
